Hello Lovely People!
I am baffled as to why I am stuck on this screen with the "Antelope-to-Barracuda" and "Large File Prefix" warnings at the Server Environment check stage of upgrading our Moodle site from 3.4.3 to 3.6.3 on a VPS, with all the MySQL variables already set and collation set to the required utf8mb4_unicode_ci on the database, tables and columns.
- Linux, CentOS6
- PHP 7.2
- MySQL 5.63
- Source Moodle 3.4.3
- Destination Moodle 3.6.3
- Database Variables set to required parameters as follows:
Updated the database and its tables to collation utf8mb4_unicode_ci
Upgraded collation of DB table columns to utf8mb4_unicode_ci as required, (sample table column "commenttext" below):
And yet, still no joy to proceed!
What else do I need to do? This hasn't happened to me before. Upgrades have always gone smoothly after running the MySQL queries in PhpMyAdmin to set those global variables. I have run them on the WHM PhpMyAdmin and on the cPanel PhpMyAdmin. The variables show as already having these requisite values.
I used the OPERATIONS feature in PhpMyAdmin to update the collation of the source (Moodle 3.4) db and its tables and columns to utf8mb4_unicode_ci.
I don't understand why I am still seeing this message. Can anyone think of something else I need to do?
Thank you so very much!
**PS: Even trying a fresh install of Moodle 3.6.3 is getting stuck on this same screen with those 2 items highlighted red. So is there something amiss on the WHM side?
